Welcome

My Blog's aim is to promote and encourage others to participate in the wonderful hobby that is Moth-trapping.
So why do we do it? well for some people it is to get an insight into the world of Moths, for others it is to build a list of species much like 'Twitching' in the Bird world.
The reason I do it....you never know what you might find when you open up that trap!
I hope to show what different species inhabit our Country by getting people aware of what is out there.
On this Blog you will find up-to-date records and pictures.
I run a trap regularly in my garden here in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Please also check out the links in the sidebar to the right for other people's Blogs and informative Websites.

Thanks for looking & happy Mothing!

Home - 1 : Away - 0

After a fairly warm but breezy day, both home and away (work) traps were set-up.

A pitiful 1 moth in the home trap this morning, luckily a new species for the year, a really tatty Small Quaker, odd to see one in such a state so early on.

At work, absolutely nothing! 

I think the wind must have scuppered it, as the temperature remained about 10 degrees all night.

Moth species for 2021 in the garden now stands at 17.

Small Quaker
